Billed as the biggest sit down dinner in the world, the 52nd Annual NAACP Fight for Freedom Fund Dinner attracted 10,000 to Detroit’Â€Â™s Cobo Hall on April 29. Dinner itself was unremarkable. (Reports confirm that each entree – cajun beef, some unidentified fish or a mushroom pasta – was equally mediocre.)
What was most important about this dinner though was the guest list. The governor, both of Michigan’Â€Â™s US senators, several congress members, the mayor and other public officials, business and union leaders, entrepreneurs and preachers all joined grassroots activists to honor and support the nation’Â€Â™s oldest and largest civil rights organization.
During the three and a half hour event, Lifetime Achievement awards were given to Judge Anna Diggs Taylor, attorney and politician Joel Ferguson and former NAACP head Ernest Lofton. But the main attraction was the keynote address from the man described by several of the night’Â€Â™s speakers as “Â€Âœour president”Â€Â, William Jefferson Clinton. Continue reading
A very interesting post from one of our favorite sites Playhata.com:
Pilots for 9/11 Truth, an ad-hock international organization of pilots and aviation professionals, petitioned the National Transportation and Safety Board (NTSB) via the Freedom of Information Act to obtain their 2002 report, Ã¢Â€ÂœFlight Path Study-American Airlines Flight 77Ã¢Â€Â³, consisting of a Comma Separated Value (CSV) file and Flight Path Animation, allegedly derived from Flight 77Ã¢Â€Â™s Flight Data Recorder (FDR). The 9/11 Commission relied heavily upon and frequently sited the NTSB Flight Path Study in their Final Report.In August, 2006, members of Pilots for 9/11 Truth received these documents from the NTSB and began a close analysis of the data they contain. After expert review and cross check, Pilots for 9/11 Truth has concluded that the information in these NTSB documents does not support, and in some instances factually contradicts, the official government position that American Airlines Flight 77 struck the Pentagon on the morning of September 11, 2001.
Altitude data from the FDR shows the aircraft on a different heading and at least 300 feet too high to have struck the light poles along Highway 37 moments before striking the Pentagon.
The rate of descent data is in direct conflict with the aircraft being able to impact the light poles and be captured in the Dept of Defense Ã¢Â€Âœ5 FramesÃ¢Â€Â video of an aircraft traveling nearly parallel with the Pentagon lawn.
The FDR record of data stops at least one second prior to official impact time, thus omitting crucial, final moment impact data.
If data trends are continued from the last recorded, the aircraft altitude would have been at least 100 feet too high to have hit the Pentagon, even if it were on the correct path to also hit the light poles.
An excellent lecture, summery and slide presentation by Calum Douglas, an engineering student at Oxford Brookes University and member of pilotsfor911truth.org was just put up on google video.

So the pilots reading the 911 data say the flight data doesn’t add up. From my vantage point, the 911-Truth movement (negatively called “the conspiracy theorists’ movement”) has more scientific data and common sense on our side than the official government accounts. Polls show that most Americans believe as we do, that the true story hasn’t been told.
If a presidential candidate stood up and said, “I will initiate a real investigation into exactly what happened on the day of Sept. 11, 2001 and the cover-up that followed,” he or she would immediately be the frontrunner.
And then that candidate would probably be assassinated a week later.
“The release of new video images of Flight 77 hitting the Pentagon is both a direct assault against a 9/11 truth movement that has flourished in recent months and an attempt to reinforce the attendant propaganda of 9/11 in light of Bush’s 29% approval rating.”
That from the website www.prisonplanet.com, a leader in that movement. Their article is linked above.
I looked at the video on the BBC’s website (view it there yourself) and this is nothing new. You see this silver thing which may be a plane or may not. In fact, except for one new angle, in which I could see no conclusive evidence of what type of plane, or that this was a plane, this is the same footage from the Pentagon used in the 911 Truth documentary Loose Change which you can view here.
I know. If it isn’t a plane, where is Flight 77? I don’t know. But the lack of debris from a jet on the ground sure lends credence to claims there was no plane or that it was not a Boeing 757. Continue reading
